Can anyone point me to a source.

This is a list of mobile phone network and satellite phone network operators measured by number of subscribers which is free in wikipedia with link

Furthermore, there are a few more paid services in any case:

1) researchandmarkets.com

2) deveo

It's very unlikely that there's a comprehensive open collection with the information you're looking for. At the very least, logos or graphics are going to be tricky, as they're the copyright of the individual companies.

I can't answer the rest of the question with a single source, as there are at least 6 registration entities in the U.S. alone. From the CDMA Development Group's Document 130 (PRLs):

The FCC eliminated the use of SIDs and the SID assignment process in its entirety as part of the license application and as a part of the FCC Year 2000 Biennial Regulatory Review (Amendment of Part 22 of the Commission’s Rules to Modify or Eliminate Outdated Rules Affecting the Cellular Radiotelephone Service and other Commercial Mobile Radio Services, WT Docket No. 01-108, Report and Order, FCC 02-229 (released Sept. 24, 2002), the section 22.941 of the Commission Rules, 47 C.F.R. § 22.941).

IFAST (International Forum on ANSI-41 Technology) might have it, but they charge:

An Excel spreadsheet with more detailed IRM (SID) information is available to IFAST members. Membership is free to IRM/SID assignees upon application, and costs $1000 per year to others. For more information contact [email protected] .
